Installing / Upgrading

$ pip install -U PyScanii


>>> from PyScanii import PyScanii
>>> pyscanii = PyScanii('SOMEAPIKEY', 'SECRET', verbose=True) # Verbose is good while integrating / debugging.

# You can ping to see if things are set up properly.
{u'message': u'pong', u'key': u'SOMEAPIKEY'}

# There is a .test method that sends the EICAR test string.
# WARNING: Costs a scan credit.

>>> pyscanii.test()

# It will populate the files list like any other scan.
>>> pyscanii.files[0].infected

# .scan() is the main method.
# It can accept single strings or paths.
# It can also accept a list or tuple of either of those things.
>>> pyscanii.scan('X5O!P%@AP[4\\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*')
# The files property contains a list of ScanFile instances:

>>> pyscanii.files[0]
(563ef4b7836060b3bb9d0cba3e6a5f84) string.bin - Infected: True - Findings: [u'av.eicar-test-signature']

>>> str(pyscanii.files[0])
'{"content_length": 68, "infected": true, "name": "string.bin", "content_type": "text/plain", "checksum": "3395856ce81f2b7382dee72602f798b642f14140", "metadata": {}, "id": "563ef4b7836060b3bb9d0cba3e6a5f84", "findings": ["av.eicar-test-signature"], "creation_date": "2016-04-05T14:57:35.989Z"}'

>>> pyscanii.files[0].infected

>>> pyscanii.files[0].findings

# You can also, of course, scan file paths:

>>> pyscanii.scan('~/Desktop/IMG_0011.jpeg')

>>> pyscanii.files[0].infected

>>> pyscanii.files[0].findings

# The last_file property is good when you've only scanned one file:
>>> pyscanii.last_file
(d0e6345ea2ceb9c1f260c8e249f933df) ~/Desktop/IMG_0011.jpeg - Infected: False - Findings: []

>>> pyscanii.last_file.infected
